Reading revisited

Now that I have some time, I have decided to start reading again. My bestie recommended this book to me a year ago. I purchased it for $1 at the Friends of the Library book sale last February and it sat on my bookshelf for almost a year. I have been so engrossed in all the million other things that we have had going on and forgot about the thing that I love doing most....reading a quality book. Alice Sebold's writing is fantastic. She can make a dark subject light hearted and I hate to say this but almost comical in a way. I wanted to finish it before the movie comes out. Watched the trailer today. It is always so weird to me the way characters look when a book is turned into a movie. I have them pictured in my mind totally different. Anyway, just thought I would share. I am a quarter of the way through and I would highly recommend this read.

Handmade is always better

A very dear friend gave me this ornament yesterday. I absolutely love it. She admitted to "stalking" my blog so she got a pretty heavy dose of the things that I really like. I will hang it on my tree every year and think of her.

My dad made this for Zach. Fitting and perfectly made.

I really do have the best group of family and friends. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

NYC Christmas on your coffee table

I would really like to have this book. I have always wanted to go to New York for Christmas and see the tree lit, walk through Central Park in the snow or actually watch people ice skate in Rockefeller Plaza in December and not April. There is just something so wonderful and infectious about NYC. Plus, "Miranda" wrote the foreword. Nice touch!

Holiday Cheer

My dearest Anthropologie, you never cease to amaze me..........

These are just plain creative.
I want to make some with old mason jars.
They are essentially a cooler version of a snow globe.

These boots melt my heart

I need another pair of boots like I need a hole in the head.
But who can resist the perfect construction
of these beautiful Frye boots.
I laid awake last night thinking about all the outfits I could wear pair these with.
